The Colt Coral is an aggressive coral and thereby is suggested to keep it away from the neighbor corals. It features small colonies and is slippery to the touch and usually has small colonies. The Colt Coral is very easy to maintain and looks extremely beautiful in your aquarium. It requires medium to high lighting condition along with strong water movement. The Colt Coral requires the addition of strontium, iodine, and other trace elements to the water that provides it with a continued good health. Its rearing is very easy and requires snipping off a piece of its tentacles and attaching to the solid structure such as live rock. The Colt Coral will also benefit from additional food such as micro plankton, baby brine shrimp, or foods filtering feeding invertebrates. It has to be noted that while shipping the Colt Coral, it might secrete some mucus like coating to protect itself, and to remove this mucus coating one need to rinse it vigorously in seawater before placing it in the aquarium. The Colt Coral have tiny living organisms in their tissue which are called as Zooxanthellae. This is the reason why there is need of strong lighting in an aquarium where these corals are the inhabitants. These Zooxanthellae undergo photosynthesis and provide oxygen and other nutrients produced during the photosynthesis to the coral. The Colt Coral makes a terrific addition to any aquarium and needs little attention while setting it in the aquarium.

|I recieved a nice sized peice of this coral. You can't beat it for that price. I was expecting the same color as in the picture, but after reading the discription it doesn't specify color. The one I got was a great color anyhow.Would recommend, I'm actually thinking about getting another.|

|Nice color and shape. Will look good once we get some extension. About a 3-4" specimen on a little chunk of rock.|
